Legal weed is on the ballot in New Jersey on Tuesday, which means a powerful force with soon have to reckon with the fallout of recreational marijuana. That powerful force, of course, is Jersey moms.
Mashable’s own Vicky Leta created a pitch perfect impression of a certain New Jersey mom — likely Italian-American, needling, a little neurotic, gossipy, loving to a fault, ultimately kind of fun — reacting to and reckoning with weed’s legalization. Here, just watch:
I count every line of this monologue as perfect, but here are three of my favorites because I can:
“Who ya doing it with? Oooh, Tommy Cacciatore….Hmm, no surprise there.”
“You lift the box by the foyer, you put your shit in there when’s it done — every ash, every paper, all the crap — then you bring it down by the boiler in the basement, then you hide it.”
“Please don’t tell your grandma. I still need her ziti recipe.”
The legalization initiative is widely expected to pass, so we should all prepare for this video to become a reality.
